How you can save thousands on your window repairs

WE REPAIR AND REPLACE

It’s stressful when things break or go wrong. Especially when it seems the only solution comes at great expense. Unexpected bills hit households hard at a time when every penny counts, and means thousands of homeowners put off fixing their windows or doors for fear of the costs involved.

Steamed-Up Windows Broken Hinges Handles & Locks

But with national window, door and conservatory repair specialists, WindowGeeks, local home owners have access to a real money-saving option. One that will reduce what could be an alarming bill in the thousands to a fair one in the low hundreds – or even lower than that. In fact, the average single repair or replacement undertaken by WindowGeeks is less than £65.

OUR GLASS COMES WITH A 10 YEAR GUARANTEEE

“Lots of people have problems with their windows, “They get steamed up and won’t clear, or the locks stick and the handles get loose. What most people don’t realise, though, is that all of that can be fixed quickly and without spending a fortune. “There are quite a few traditional window companies that won’t repair though, as they’re not really interested in the smaller jobs. And that’s what’s so great about WindowGeeks. We offer the most cost-effective solution, which makes it a very easy decision for our customers. There’s no pressure sales from us because there’s no viable alternative. Unless you want to spend 10, 20 or even 100 times more on replacing all your windows !” While the cost savings might be the biggest draw,there’s another reason customers should choose WindowGeeks,“It’s all about honesty and trust”. “There’s an integrity to what WindowGeeks does and that’s very important to us. We tell the truth, we only charge for what needs doing, we honour our promises and we help people everyday. That might sound corny, but you can run a successful business and be ethical at the same time.”

SAMPLE PRICE LIST (including VAT & fitting) Steamed Up Windows from £30 Replacement handles from £35 Replacement hinges from £55 Replacement locking system from £60 Anti-bumb/anti-snap Security locks from £69

At GERRARDS the increase has been approaching fourfold, with buyers from all over the UK together, also many international purchasers from USA and Asia all logging onto GERRARDS three weekly auctions. It is surprising how many people in the North West are now bringing a range CHINESE & JAPANESE items into our salesrooms, many having been inherited from older relatives who were around in the first half of the Twentieth Century, when ceramics and collectables from the Far East were so very popular and now, over the years have significantly increased in value.

Consumer advice

Credit cards by Martin Lewis They are the marmite of finance. Credit cards are both the best and worst way to borrow- do it right and it’s a way to get a loan at no cost at all. However, get it wrong and it can put you in debt hell. One of the key weapons in the savvy customer’s arsenal is a balance transfer, which allows you to cut existing debt costs. So, I want to show you the best current deals and clear up some common myths. In a nutshell, a balance transfer card repays debts on other cards for you, so you owe it instead, but at a cheaper rate. As more of your repayments clear the debt, you pay less interest and are debt-free sooner. Currently the longest 0% balance transfer deal on the market is Barclaycard, offering 27 months (18.9% APR after) with a fee of just 2.5%, which for some will work out cheaper. If you can repay far quicker than that, Halifax—while only 15mths 0% - has just a 1% transfer fee (17.9% APR after), so it’s worth considering. For daily updated options, including longer term deals, go to www.mse.me/bts.

Three golden rules to remember

1

It isn’t just about getting the right card; it’s about doing it the right way. There are three simple rules you always need to follow: With a 0% card, either clear the debt or shift it again before the 0% ends—or you will pay the full APR, meaning interest costs soon mount up. Always pay at least the specified minimum repayment on time each month (preferably more) or you risk losing the special rate. Don’t spend or withdraw cash on these, it isn’t usually at the cheap rate. So those are the basics, but what is a rather simple concept that tends to throw up a huge number of questions? Here are the most common I receive:

2 3

Q: How do they decide if they’ll accept me? Cards score your application based on how closely you meet their wish list of what a profitable customer is. So if you’ve had past credit problems, it’s tough. Frustratingly, the only way to find out for sure is to apply. But that puts a mark on your credit file (whether you’re accepted or not). To find your likely odds of acceptance for different cards, use my Eligibility Checker tool at www.mse.me/bts.

Q: How many can I apply for? There’s no set limit on the number of cards you can apply for, but lots of applications in a short space of time can cause problems. If you are credit card tarting (shifting from 0% to 0% when it ends) then this shouldn’t be too big of an issue, as these applications should be spread out.

Q: Will my payments remain the same if I shift to a new card? You can repay what you like on a credit card as long as its meets the set monthly minimum. So the only time your repayments may change is if a card has a different minimum.

Advertise Call 0800 970 7687

While they’re all roughly similar, there can be a difference so shifting cards can mean higher monthly payments. If that’s an issue, check before applying (it’ll be in the summary box). Though remember only paying the minimum means it’ll take an age to repay, so try to repay more if you can.

Q: Can I shift debt to a new card with the same issuer? A card issuer may accept your application for another card, but most won’t allow you to switch debts between their cards. This applies to brands managed by the same firm such as MBNA and Virgin.

Q: My new balance transfer card’s credit limit is too low, what can I do? You can ask for an increase, but that’s rarely allowed. Yet shift the maximum debt you can anyway—the application hits your file, so you may as well use it. See if you can get another cheap card for the rest.

Q: If I spend on a 0% balance transfer but pay it off, do I pay interest? Spending is usually at the standard interest rate of 15-20%, even on a 0% balance transfer card. The only way to avoid this is to clear the entire debt off the card in full at the end of the month. If you repay all of your spending but leave transfer debt, you still pay interest. Get a different card to spend on— preferably one with either 0% on spending if you need to borrow or cashback if you don’t.

Q: Should I cancel unused old cards? Access to excess credit, even if unused, can make lenders wary. Cancelling could boost your creditworthiness, but there’s no hard and fast rule. Before cancelling, if you have debts elsewhere, check whether the card will give you an existing customer balance transfer offer. This can happen (i.e., it lets you shift debt to it at a cheap rate even though you’re not a new cardholder). A few, especially Barclaycard, will try to persuade you not to cancel with £50 cash.

Q: Can I balance transfer onto someone else’s card? For example, can a woman with a good credit score agree to shift debts from her partner who has a dodgy credit record? Lenders, who I’ve checked with, confirm that you can. Though, if you do then you need to remember that the debt legally then becomes yours. There’s no going back.

Q: Do you pay interest on the transfer fee? This varies per provider, but either way it’s usually paid off after your first monthly payment, so the amount’s small.

Q: Can I transfer an overdraft balance/loan to a 0% card? A money transfer lets you balance transfer cash into your bank account. You can then use it to repay the loan, so you owe the card instead. Be very careful, as most 0% cards don’t allow this at 0% and cost a fortune. For top picks of those that do, visit www. mse.me/moneytransfers. @MoneySavingExpert

Paul Galley

‘Diary of a local Councillor’ Paul Galley is a Councillor for Anchorsholme in Blackpool and each month he writes a weekly diary of what he has been up to. Saturday: Today I was really happy to see that the long planned for rockery has finally been built on Sevenoaks Drive. I’m so proud of it, it looks great and I’m sure over time the flowers will really bed in and add a lot of colour to the area. If anyone gets the chance have a look at this new garden. I don’t know if you remember but last year we built a raised flower bed garden at the end of Seabrook Drive and again if you get the chance do go and have a look at it, some local people have been looking after it and have done a brilliant job, I met up with them in the morning to help with some weeding and it’s looks superb. Sunday: This morning I attended a wonderful event organised by the Over 50’s Bingo Club at Sevenoaks Community Centre. It was a lovely chance for the local community to build strong relationships with businesses in the area. I had a fantastic time and love meeting all the residents of the area. On the walk home I went the long way around and inspected the hotspots which have been reported to me as having problems with weeds along the footpaths and gutters. I’m glad to say that a few days later we had community payback remove all the weeds and it’s made a very positive difference. However, with the warm weather continuing I am aware that this is something that needs to be constantly handled so if you know of any weeds in your area, then please don’t hesitate to call me on: 01253 826679 or email me on cllr.paul.galley@blackpool.gov.uk and I’ll sort get them removed (I hate weeds). Monday: Today was a very good day, I had a meeting regarding concessions in Anchorsholme Park and I’m delighted to say after much hard work by everyone involved I have some very good news and that is I can confirm the restoration of golf in the park. 48

Along side being able to hire a set of golf clubs and play golf in the park, you can also hire a set of bowls and enjoy an afternoon bowling. Tennis will be free and I know this bit will be popular the toilet in Anchorsholme Park will be open every day as well. Please do support the golf and the bowling, a lot of people have put in a lot of work to make this possible and we really need them to do well for the good of the park and the area so please do come along and play. I would also recommend a cup of tea or a pie from the cafe in the park, I brought one and it was lovely. Tuesday: This morning Councillor Tony Williams and I attended a meeting about the possibility of having a new social club for the over 60’s move into Anchorsholme. The club, currently based in Norbreck, has been told that it will loose its premises so both Tony and myself are looking into the possibility of moving the club into a hall in Anchorsholme. The club would be open to everyone and I’ll let you know as soon as I have some more information. Wednesday: In the morning, as usual, I had many laughs and fun calling the bingo at St Teresa’s Church Hall. In the afternoon I met up with a resident who had a housing issue. I won’t go in to any details but my role can be very humbling at times. On a more positive note, I’ve come up with a plan to plant some Marigolds along the edges of Eastpines Park to give it a nice orange colour on the sides. If anyone has any spare Marigolds please call or email me as I’ve grown a few that I’m going to plant but if you have got any spare ones it would be a big help. Thursday: I worked on my recruitment business in the morning. It was great to catch up on all the little jobs that needed doing. And this evening I held my surgery at All Saints Church which I really enjoyed as I love meeting and talking with people. I hold the surgeries the first Thursday every month at All Saints Church from 6pm so if you have a problem and want to see me please do come along and I will be glad to help or call me on 01253 826679 and I’ll gladly visit you. Many thanks

Paul Galley Councillor for Anchorsholme
